Ivy League Football Report, 1995 October 23

The Princeton Tigers rolled on this week, winning their third Ivy League football contest and their sixth game overall against no losses on the season. They were 14-3 winners over Harvard, whose only win this season came in a non-league game against winless Colgate. Keeping pace in the Ivy race were Columbia, who posted a 21-7 win over Yale. Defending champs Pennsylvania regained their winning ways after a couple of losses by topping lowly Brown 58-21. In non-conference action, Dartmouth extended Colgate's misery with a 35-14 drubbing of the Red Raiders in rainy New Hampshire and Cornell lost for the second week in a row, 34-23 at Lehigh.

The League now begins its title run in earnest, as the last four weeks of the season are all-Ivy. The key matchup this week is in central New Jersey, where 3-0 Columbia take on 3-0 Princeton for sole posession of first place and the inside track to the title. In other action, 2-1 Cornell, whose only league loss came against the Tigers, are at 0-3 Brown, while 2-1 Penn, whose record winning streak was snapped a few weeks ago by the Lions, are at 1-2 Yale. Finally, 0-3 Harvard try to get something going as they host 1-2 Dartmouth.
